While deployed. This was early and we didn't have all of our spot lights or upgraded turret mounted yet.
2005 FPI Joint EOD Rapid Response Vehicle (JERRV) 6x6, Cat C7/Allison 3500SP/Cushman 2sp X-Case, M-H axles. She's a lightweight beast, only 42K dry.
(Yes, that sexy guy next to it is me, complete with deployment hair and moustache.)

New state-side response truck. It took me two years to convince people a Duramax was the answer. Our 3500 DRW 6.0 was a pig!!
2009 Chevrolet D/A CC/LB 3500 SRW LS 4x4 w/ITBC

It is that good, honestly. Some of our security folks got the new version before we redeployed this last time and they were amazed.

Well, I can't say how fast it will go but you can find the MRAP drag races on YouTube. The FPI Buffalo(Mack8) won, but the JERRV had until the line. I know they will go 70 but the tires are only good to 55. Economy is good. Those ACERTs are great runners but they do not like JP-8. We added oil to every tank to keep the IPs happy. I think we got around 8 MPG but we were usually going extremely slowly.
